Exert your influence to make the date coincide with either Labor day, or happen before the 15th of August (some of us have kids in school, you may recall). I'd try to palm off the kid to a grandparent for the weekend and drive down just me and the wife once in our goddamned motherfucking lives for shit's sake.

Sorry.

I am willing to bet you are correct on the hair. We sponser more than micros. For instance we sponser volvo trucks, hybrids, and the occasional slk32.

And some of us have to go to work to sell you the shit your kids need to go to school.

I think having a kid would be neat. Such a rare chance for a new scientific experiment.

Tk, it's a quick drive. Qban, Cinci is direct from Tulsa. GS, it's direct to Columbus on AW. Shane, if you're in Houston it's direct. Sante Fe, not so much. Prof, easy direct from BWI. Nutz, call me. We got a year to plan.
I hate driving long distances.

Maybe when you get IN the bus.

Got any further info on the yellow MG? I'm with Ears, if I had to hazard a guess, I'd say Italian, rather than Brit. Whatever, it sure has clean unadulterated lines--and I'm really not a sports-car guy.
